Inner West Aircraft Noise

The new Sydney Airport Master Plan 2039 is a recipe for chaos and congestion.

The plan forecasts total air passenger numbers at Sydney Airport will increase by 51% to 65.6m people by 2039. 

Much of Leichhardt, Lilyfield and Annandale are already affected by current increases in aircraft noise and with many houses still uninsulated, this is only going to get worse. Moreover, the Masterplan has very little detail about what public transport infrastructure will be built to meet this increase in passenger numbers. 

At an absolute minimum, the Master Plan needs to meet targets for noise sharing to spread noise across communities, and protect residents from noise with insulation. The Australian Standard for aircraft noise recommends insulation for homes subject to 20 ANEF or higher which would mean tens of thousands more homes would require insulation. 



Dear Geoff Culbert (CEO Sydney Airport),

The Sydney Airport Master Plan 2039 has the potential for chaos and congestion and will bring increased aircraft noise to our local community.

I support Jamie Parker's plan to:

  • Insulate every residence impacted by unacceptable levels of aircraft noise.
  • Meet noise sharing targets to relieve pressure on the Inner West.
  • Ensure government commits to invest in public transport infrastructure in order to meet the increase in demand.
  • Support the call for high speed rail from Sydney to Melbourne to provide an alternative to air travel.
